Bone mineral density and body composition in pubescent obese children endangered by metabolic syndrome

Tobisch Borbala , Kozma Andrea , Nagy-Szakall Zsuzsanna , Peter Ferenc , Blatniczky Laszlo

Aims: The prevalence of type 2 diabetes due to insulin resistance is increasing in puberty. Authors have investigated whether body weight excess arises only from increased fat content of the body. Different anthropometrical data were also analysed if they are able to predict degree of insulin resistance.Materials and methods: 108 obese children (50 female, 58 male, Tanner st-s1-5, mean age 12.06 years, mean BMI: 30.97 kg/m2) with positive fami...

There are very few data on their lower growth response to the usual GH replacement dose. The aim of this multi-centre retrospective study is to analyse the hGH dose dependency of GHD children with SGA.SGA was defined as a birth weight/length below – 2 SD for gestational ...
